Former WWE wrestler Big Cass opens up about his battle with depression

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Dallas Page released a video featuring former WWE wrestler Big Cass (a/k/a CaZXL) discussing his struggle with depression and anxiety. Cass spoke about drinking so heavily that he doesn’t know how he’s alive. He added that WWE had every right to get rid of him. Cass said he took the seizure he suffered at the House of Hardcore event as a sign from above. You can view the video below or at the DDP Yoga Youtube Page.

Powell’s POV: Major respect for Cass for going public with his situation. He noted in a tweet that he hopes his video can help someone out there who is also struggling, and hopefully that’s the case. Fortunately, he changed his lifestyle and it shows in his physical appearance and demeanor. Good for him.
